With the painting done its is time to get these brackets fitted to the spars


The painting was a bit fiddly – two part Stewart Systems top coat. Took me a while to get the paint the right consistency and for it to sit nicely once sprayed. Anyway, once dried it took a few hours to fit and adjust to the point I could tighten all of the bolts.

This last picture shows the reamer in place for the 3/4 inch hole that will have a bushing inserted through the spar.
